"the times" is a two-section newspaper, a term that "the times" does not like anymore. the editor -- when you use in it, they get a little bit squeamish. some of you i should probably say, one of my sources -- it took a great deal of reading the, and interviews. "the times" is generous in giving me access, letting the interview them. mostly, i got this through approaching them and asking them, and one led to the other. most of the masthead figures in the 1999 -- a good many of them and all the executive editors. i never got to interview him. keller -- jill abramson, keller. the book does have a lot of very good source ing. one time when i spoke somebody -- when i said somebody spoke anonymously. i give them a name and attribution. i say that because i think that is very important in american journalism today. one of the embarrassment of the time is they have often printed articles without adequate sources. the times is partly under siege because

[applause] you thought romney was going to win with 70%. if you watch msnbc, god help you. [laughter] a consequence of that, we did not do a good job communicating to those who were not already in the choir. let's take young people. young people voted overwhelmingly for barack obama. we did not carry the message. if you are a young person coming out of school, why would you be voting for a president and party that has done so much damage to the economy that you cannot find a job? the answer is to live with your parents until you are 26 and can be on their health care. it is not complicated. you are getting stuck with that bill. your parents and grandparents have taken out a credit card in your name and they are maxing it out and going to vegas. we have to make this message and carry it to people who have not heard it yet. >> i have a question that goes to the very far future. we are facing a future with artificial intelligence saying there will not be a job in the fu

msnbc or cnn or the three networks and a whole host of websites that do a good job of policing media bias. as political leaders at magazines like "national review" we should emphasize more on what our plans are for america than being media critics. >> i follow the news a little bit but i'm confused. is the afghanistan war over? and did we win? was it worth fighting? is it over? >> it is not over if you ask the 68,000 troops that are still there tonight. they are probably fighting at this moment. did we win? it is hard to know if you listen to the president because he has banished win, loss, from his vocabulary. wars don't end. wars are won or they are lost. physical you don't win the war, you will never win the peace which is the what the president said he wants to do. we only won "the peace" in japan because we destroyed our enemies and we achieved unconditional surrender. in the nature of counterinsurgency you're not going to have that kind of moment. the war is winnable as iraq was. i worry that the president's decision will snatch the feet from the jaw's of decision. i think they
